Advancing Leadership in Science & Technology

Committees

Each member takes part in three committees.  Much of the work of CSSP is done by its ad hoc time-limited task forces and its committees:

  • Association Best Practices Exchange
  • Cybersecurity
  • Diversity & Science Careers
  • Energy & Environment
  • Ethics
  • Interdisciplinary Projects
  • International Science
  • Math & Science Education
  • Population & Food Security
  • Public Appreciation of Science
  • Public & Government Affairs
  • Scholarly Journals

These committees offer CSSP members an opportunity to gain broad support for positions on science and education issues relating to the concerns of their respective societies and unique opportunities to build networks among leaders of most major scientific societies to coordinate actions.  Policy statements, resolutions, and action plans for programs are debated and recommended by these committees, which normally meet at the beginning of each semi-annual meeting of the Council.  CSSP updates its members on government activities and on emerging issues throughout the year.
